    Suffering quotes by:    

It is important to receive God's arrangement in the circumstances. This arrangement is the discipline of the Holy Spirit. To escape God's arrangement just one time is to lose an opportunity to have our capacity enlarged. A believer can never be the same after passing through suffering.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Gaining spiritual life is conditional on suffering loss. We cannot measure our lives in terms of "gain"; they must be measured in terms of "loss." Our real capacity lies not in how much we retain but in how much has been poured out. The power of love is attested by love's sacrifice. If our hearts are not separated from the love of the world, our soul life has yet to go through the cross.

    Author: Watchman Nee

He who is willing to suffer for God and men does not live for himself; but those who daily seek sensuous pleasures and become apprehensive about bearing burdens for God and the church are living only for themselves.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The Lord frequently leads the saint through painful experiences in order that he may not love the Lord for his own sake.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God would not rub so hard if it were not to fetch out the dirt that is ingrained in our natures. God loves purity so well He had rather see a hole than a spot in His child's garments.

    Author: William Gurnall

Paul was Nero's prisoner, but Nero was much more God's.

    Author: William Gurnall

We are bid to take, not to make our cross.

    Author: William Gurnall

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.

    Author: William Penn

It is a coal from God's altar must kindle our fire; and without fire, true fire, no acceptable sacrifice.

    Author: William Penn

My overcoat is worn out; my shirts also are worn out. And I ask to be allowed to have a lamp in the evening; it is indeed wearisome sitting alone in the dark.

    Author: William Tyndale

For one drop calls another down, till we are drowned in seas of grief.

    Author: Isaac Watts

Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering.... The love of God did not protect His own Son.... He will not necessarily protect us - not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process.
